I'm frustrated. :(

I wish I felt secure. I just don't. I know things will feel better once school starts but right now I feel so lost. I just wish I knew what I was doing. Every day I feel more confused and I keep thinking about all the things I need to do. Plus, I feel very restless when I am at home. This place still doesn't feel like my home. I need my apartment to be a sanctuary...a place to rejuvenate and escape to. If I'm honest with myself, I like to be in my classroom more than here. Of course, when I'm home, all I do is think about things I need to do back at home. I wish I could just leave my work at school....but being a teacher really is a full-time job.

I am so excited to meet my kids tomorrow. I have to remember that they are why I do this. :)

Meet the Teacher Night: TOMORROW!!
First Day of School: 4 more days!
